their attention back to the economy today; investors and traders liked what they heard. americans are feeling the most optimistic they have been in nearly five years about their finances and the outlook for the economy. the conference board's confidence index jumped to a reading of 72.2 last month. driving that gain, an improving job market. new ai for unemployment insurance fell by 9,000 in the past week to 363,000, showing modest improvement in the jobs picture. we'll have more on jobs in a moment. as for stocks, the dow gained 136 points, the nasdaq was up 42, the s&p adding 15. >> susie: but economists say that encouraging report on jobless claims and the confidence survey were collected before hurricane sandy. meanwhile, the effects of the monster storm are paralyzing much of new jersey and new york city here's an update: fr and a ha mlion pple are still without power, and it could take another ten days before power is restored. limited flights have resumed at all of the airports in the new york area. public schools are still closed in the city, as well as many schools in new jersey. and
on the president and how he's doing on the economy. 45 percent are approving of the job is doing. 52 percent are not. i should say that approval rating has edged up. this could be, perhaps, the more distressing news for at least mitt romney. he still leads among independent voters by 7 percent, but that has gone down from 12% that he enjoyed a little more than a couple weeks ago. you can extrapolate all you will from these polls. doesn't mean that the trend is the residence friend again, six days to go, it's anyone's guess. the romney folks still feel the momentum is there. in the sunshine state particularly. >> hi. on the subject of disaster relief effort, one of the pre-show entertainer's a little while ago encouraged the audience to tax that red cross number and raise a thousand dollars. a guesstimate that it was considerably more. lots of people responded. that has been what he has been doing for the last day in a half, but the campaign resumed its rhetoric. romney did not mention obama by name. lots of advocacy for the romney agenda conto million jobs. more energy production. education,
-cents, joining us now to analyze what is going on with the economy. these markets, arthur lapre it is great to have you with us. >> thank you, lou. lou: start with impact of the hurricane. to whether much is made too much made, of the impact on gdp growth or broad economy for next several months. >> it is just a temporary hit, i would expect from the storm. i don't think it will be long lasting or affect gdp growth. it will not affect the ream economy over -- real economy over any long run. lou: our hearts go out to those who suffered so much damage and devastation, and losses. and those who lost loved ones. this is a very tough time, and it is almost impossible to judge what the impact will be, psychically on the nation. andn terms of the politics. give us your best assessment there. >> well, i don't think it will have much of an affect on politics, both candidates handled themselves well. president oba of presidential, and did these duties correctly. i don't think that mitt romney any anything wrong. he was very respectful of the storm and respectful of the people. i think the
, what's your take on the markets right now and this storm? how does it impact the economy and the markets from here? >> i think it's modestly constructive. i think we're still in the middle of the square root shaped economic recovery we've been in for over three years now. a grinding upward trend within the data. i think you saw some of the positive news. i think the chinese numbers were a little stronger than many had figured. so the global economy may not be decelerating as quickly as many had feared, but certainly earnings are going to trump a lot of investors coming into the season. i think coming into the fourth quarter, earnings are going to be critical but revenue is going to be extremely critical in an economic environment that's grindsi grinding upward. >> kevin, what about you? i know you're growing increasingly pessimistic about the impact of the fiscal cliff. what else is becoming a drag in terms of uncertainty on in economy and the market? >> i think right now markets are too complacent about the fiscal cliff. a lot of people assume things are going to get wor
on the economy right before the election are not encouraging for the president. good morning, everyone. do you want gas? in the new york area, you will have to wait for hours, you want power? millions will wait for days, but it's the supply of gas that is today's crisis. driving to work will be almost impossible for millions. piled on top of the mass power outage, the whole nation's economy will surely take a hit. new numbers today, paint a grim picture on employment and it's a snapshot of the economy which remains weak. the latest fox news poll shows a dead heat and the candidates are tied five days to the election. we are we go. another big day. "varney & company" is about to begin. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td amer
that will pull us together. also with the economy which is another big sticking point. we are supposed to have constitutionly -- the congress is supposed to take care of our monetary policy but since we shrugged that off to another entity and it's not doing a good job of it. these are the things i want to get back to doing as a congressman if you will elect me, we will see a lot -- we will see things happen differently in this country. >> let's get to some of the questions, one thing people are wondering about is the economy. 16 trillon dollars in debt. unemployment at 8%, housing market is a mess. what would do you? >> you have to face it by addressing monetary policy. this is something that congress ignores even though we try to fix small things here and there. we are going to mess with this housinmarket, just try to -- increase jobs over here through the government expansion of some sort of program or another. the real thing that boils down is the economy is where the money comes and what it's made of. the fact we have a federal reserve that's about to again do another round of easing, th
of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen since 2010. you have romney momentum. you've got people, people decided that obama is incompetent. he can't run on anything. those are serious fundamentals. >> when we get to election day, people who are genuinely independent i think are going to break slightly our way in these battleground states. that is the data i'm looking at. >> there are many republicans, independents and democrats who aren't satisfied with the direction that we've been going in the last four years. they want a change. they want to go in a different direction. they want somebody to believe in them. they are doing that with their vote. >> we can't lose. we're going to take back america. we're going to keep it strong. we're going to overcome our challenges and keep america the hope of the earth. i need your vote on november 6th. get out and vote early. >> greta: we have more to break down the polls, minutes away. but disturbing information about benghazi. fox news obtained a classified cable from the mission in benghazi to the state departme
power. including around 650,000 in new york city alone. and costs to the country's economy estimated between $10 billion and $20 billion and growing. we're going to talk about the political, economic and environment implications of hurricane sandy for the next two hours, including how this natural disaster has linked this year's prominent foes, president obama andries and chris christie. both told reporters that they were determined to repair and rebuild the damage even as they praised each other's forms the crisis. >> the things we need to do is to make sure power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinking water hospitals are taken care of the way we need to, and kids are back to school. i'm please to report that the president has sprung into action immediately to help us get us those things while we were in the car riding together. i appreciate that. he has worked extremely closely with me since the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation oversince the weekend. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and
today. some of it supposed to have come out earlier in the week, was delayed. shows an economy building momentum. that is at least until sandy came. steve leisman here. steve, is sandy going to slam the brakes on this slightly upward arc we're seeing in the economy? >> it is definitely going to have an impact on the economy. today we got a read on the economy ahead of sandy giving us really a baseline. that baseline was a little bit better than economists originally thought. at almost every count. perhaps the miss here -- what a nice graphic they made. perhaps the miss there was because they don't know how to estimate the new methodology. but that was better than expected. claims a little bit better than expected. ism above expectations also. construction spending powered by residential spending. government spending was tailing off there. consumer sentiment missed, but that was better than it was in the prior month. take a look at the ism manufacturing index in detail. we had this swoon, june, july, august, now it's popped back up above 50 for two months in a row. early to call a trend
the biggest headlines affecting the energy industry and their impact on the economy. first up, crude prices rose on their first day of trading since superstorm sandy renewed demand and helped drive prices up more than half a percent, settling at 86.24 a barrel. good news for nine major oil refineries on the east coast, assessments found they avoided serious damage. seven are working back towards normal operations. meanwhile short-term supply worries pushed up gasoline futures prices. they settled up more than 1% on the day. >>> president obama banging the drum on the rich paying their fair share on taxes. he has less than a week to sell the message. we're breaking down the facts. >>> plus, mayor michael bloomberg tells president obama, i think we doneed you to visit new york city, thanks very much. i think that makes it a lot of sense. one of the people on the show says it is a major slight and he is coming here to disagree with me. mo coming up. ♪ . melissa: so it is the final stretch to six days till the election and the tax debate is getting even louder. the major battle cry from the l
the economy. that has been the message in manassas. >> these are critical times in this country and so you have a choice. america is going to have a choice. he city cannot fix washington from the inside. we will give him that chance. will have 40 straight months of unemployment above 8%. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> paul ryan has also made frequent visits to virginia. >> do we want to stay on the path that president obama has placed a son? i take it as a no. >> ryan brought the message back to jobs. >> he said this would create jobs and prevent unemployment from getting about 8%. >> another circuit has been his wife ann. he hasshe insists women also need to focus on the economy. >> as we now this economy has had women harder than men. it has been much tougher on them. >> virginia has been the selected site for other major romney messages. he chose emi for his foreign policy address. >> i know the president hope for a safer and prosperous middle east. i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> as he did in the debates romney asserts -- inserts the e

[applause] >> thank you. it's great to be here. h let me just quickly introduce our panelists. please have a seat. to my immediate left is grady burnett who's vice president of global marketing at facebook and lived in ann arbor for many years, so he's a local. mark hatch is the ceo of tech shop which has a recent facilita that opened up here not too far from the airport, we'll be talking about what we do there. danae ringelmann is the co-founder and coo of indiegogo, and david ten have is the ceo of ponoko which is a very interesting platform for manufacturing. what we're going to talk about today is the do-it-yourselfy, economy and how, how different h tools have become available to entrepreneurs beyond just whatav we've become accustomed to in the internet world. so the cost of producing a start-up, you know, has declined dramatically in the past decade, and we've seen this flowering of internet and mobile start-ups. but we're also starting to see many of those same tactics and techniques being used by start-ups in the other industries and particular
thanksgiving when winds. and then the market will get back to trying to figure out what is the economy, what will earnings do. from current levels i think we have some decent upside next year. lori: department stores, application software, given the hurricane and the aftermath you heard home depot, are you changing some strategies? given that disaster? >> our investors, given with the retail investors in it for the longer haul. the home-improvement retailers, they have really done well, and things are selling right now. plywood, tarps, all those things are low margin items and while they have seen a jump since sandy hit in the market has reopened, i don't know how much they're really going to get out of sandy, but they will get more out of a continuation of the economic recovery so if you are in those we want you to stay in those, but we are not trying to get our investors in and out of stocks quickly based on the aftermath of the hurricane. lori: until your talking but the treasuries, are you taking up the space, we'd advise equities? >> even though the market is pretty close, the year-end
analogis. whoever wins the commonwealth will win it by a nose. the governor pressing hard on economy today. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat
economy standards to 55 miles per hour by the year 2025. that not only backs out 3 million barrels of oil a day from the persian gulf, all of the oil they import from the persian gulf, but it also reduces one full year of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. mitt romney is saying he'll roll back those standards. all the way down the line, there's a sharp contrast here of, you know -- there are no emergency rooms for planets. we either engage in preventive care here and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that go into the atmosphere, or we are going to see ever greater intensifying catastrophic events hitting our country and causing tremendous damage to the american people. >> congressman, thanks so much for coming on the program. we appreciate it. let's go live to roanoke, virginia. mitt romney is at what they're calling a victory event at integrity windows and doors company. let's listen. >> it was powerful to listen to jake and to speak with his sister susan. the two of them are leaders, the top two people in their company. they're making products for america. they and their
it on the economy. there maybe resents but he has not do it -- done it. lou: i am confused with the reasoning, led the national media dropping in the bail of pretense and simply supporting one man now through reelection use it just somehow governor romney would influence what they did or did not do? >> i am saying he could make it a big issue by commenting. he has not done that. there is one thing how you push the story and it is one thing for fox. lou: but now to a knowledge fox has been right. now we hear from abc will lease chronicles the efforts of others. "washington post" now chronicling the documents they found on a october 26 it is in benghazi at the consulate. where has the media ben? >> mitt romney could put this on a front-page. >> i heard you say that three times. i still don't believe it. >> this is not about governor romney but a corrupt actions from the media not to cover this pri is negligence and dereliction of duty not have a press conference or a time line specifically what happened. what did the president do that night, what orders did he give? lou: we have a gutless national l
%. they did beat estimates even though the cfo said he's seen evidence of a weak economy all around us. you were talking about climate change and this issue of whether it's responsible for some of the weather changes that we've seen. munich re had created a bit of a firestorm when it put out a report noting that north america was seeing mcs in unusual events and attributed it to climate change. it caused quite a stir at the time. back to you. >>> coming up, chris christie touring the carnage. millions still without power. mass transit trying to get back to line. we'll get a progress report. >>> this morning not a lot of movement. yesterday the sale. things orderly in the first day of trading since everything was shut down because of sandy. this morning futures down by about two points. nasdaq up by about 2 1/4 points. >>> jfk and newark airports both operational on wednesday, but saw very few flights. jpk is seeing more arrivals than departures, but net back to normal. courtney reagan is at laguardia this morning. >> reporter: good morning. so we haven't yet seen a plane take off here. the
of the economy, the consumer, the investment and the government. the only reason thing that has grown on a rapid rate is the government. the government gets their revenues through taxation or borrowing money. the problem is the regulations are hurting small businesses. 2/3 of all jobs are created by small business which are considered -- chapter s corporations and less than $250,000 killing all of the regulations and kill the incentive. the government doesn't produce anything. it's the private sector that produces the wealth and the opportunity. get the government off the back through regulations and taxation and you will see the city once again be vibrant. i'm telling you it's taxation and regulations. i have two successful businesses. i would not open another one in san francisco. i would not. >> thank you. mr. yee. >> here's the four things i would do to create jobs. number one, help the small businesses with a one stot shop approach. ocean avenue had a fire. nine businesses had a fire and the mayor came and if he could do that one time we could do that all the time and number two
to make a living in this economy, and that was the whole purpose of the economy. we saw a situation that necessarily undermined agricultural production and livelihood systems. why? because those areas of south africa designated as bantustans were in fact labor reserves. we see a compression of space. we see high-population densities on marginal lands, and proximity to johannesburg and pretoria-- the main industrial center of south africa. and so those areas served as effective labor reserves, meaning that if we can keep the people in those areas from garnering a real livelihood, keep them structurally dependent on migration, then we have a large labor pool. narrator: there was a distinct geography of apartheid, a geography of separateness based upon race. as the gnment n to redress these injusces in 1994 and '95, land reform brought euphoric times. woman: so really today, i don't know. since this morning, i had one cup of tea. d i feel that i'm so strongly, i can even jump just because i'm going back to my land. ( singing in native language ) so the idea of a land-reform program is
of the economy on the one hand and reducing debt to recover the confidence of investors on the other. >> all right, our political correspondent. as always, thank you very much. >> u.s. president barack obama and his republican challenger for the white house mitt romney are back on the campaign trail with just five days to go until the election. >> some observers think obama's chances for reelection on november 6 may have gotten a boost from his handling of that monster storm, sandy. on that front, the cleanup effort is facing a number of challenges. >> u.s. oil company shell has confirmed, for instance, that the storm triggered an oil spill on a new jersey refinery, which is partly owned by shell, off the coast of new york city. there was at least one piece of good news for new yorkers today. >> some of new york's vital subway lines are up and running, like here below times square, but many subway tunnels are still flooded, and it is still not clear when full-service will return. especially hard hit, the brooklyn and manhattan connections and the financial district. but normal life is slowly
agree with him and the issue that is largest faces us in san francisco are the economy and there are two parts to that and creating jobs and trying to get an economy going that is sustainable and can take care of the unfunded liabilities that we have that are so large. we have $323 million in unfunded liabilities for our health care, and i agree with him again on the pension issue. we absolutely have to do something about it. what i would imagine what we have to do is examine whether or not we need to find benefits or contributions, maybe we need people to retire at a later age, whether people continue to retire and have the pay at $300,000 rather than 150. >> thank you sir. ms. gavin. >> for me the issue in regards to policy that i think many of us know is malfeasance and corruption at city hall. i think that the back room deals that city hall is doing adversely impacts every person in this room. i don't know if you are aware we have not had a sunshine committee in the past four months, and sunshine gives all the right to redress government and it's our open government that you the
this conversation going. most of them are concerned about the state of the economy and jobs and that's what they are going to the whole thinking about. >> what we know is abortion is the leading topic for women. 39% to 19% to the economy. with the electorate being 56% women, swing voters being a key women demographic, the candidates and the campaigns need to address the issue and have to be in front of it. that's why they are trying to make it an issue. >> i laugh because murdoch's comment along with todd akin, it's men bation the dumb remarks and not representative of the republican party. what i think is funny -- >> it's not unrepresentative enough that candidate romney is willing to drop that ad. >> i think it's not representative of the republican party. how i'm going to finish answering the question is that what's happening is democrats and president obama are doing a trumped-up war on women. they started it up in majority of. march. women are smarter than that. romney is tied 47% with obama about the vote. this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been eff
of that on top of already tough, tough economy. major department stores can derive 10% of sales from manhattan locations. a very big impact expected on the economy. the labor department releasing the final weekly jobs report before the presidential election. it shows 358,000 americans filing for first time jobless benefits. that is drop of just 9000. take a look back so you can keep it into perspective there is look since the start of the recession. we have little change since january when weekly jobless claims dropped to 360,000. tomorrow we get the last big monthly jobs report as the october number comes in. let's bring in fox business network stuart varney for a look at this. good mornings, stuart. what lies ahead? >> that is a difficult question to answer. looking at the numbers we received today from a couple of reports you can probably say tomorrow 8:30 eastern time there were roughly, 120,000 new jobs created last month. that is a very rough estimate looking at today's numbers. now let me go into today's numbers, they are politically loaded because they present a snapshot of the economy
: well, i'll take the question first. governor romney in the middle oh f a tough economy created almost 50,000 new jobs in massachusetts. let's remember. >> on "washington journal" tomorrow morning we'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs
for leadership? i want to focus on our economy. i want to grow job opportunities for the students that are graduating our high schools. they are now graduating, beginning to graduate with requirements. they are totally prepared to take on this high wages, high-paying jobs such as biotech and the tech companies. so, now that they're ready, we have to have the jobs ready for them. and i'm more than willing to work with our business partners to create new jobs. the other thing i i'm going to be focusing on will be that i want to make sure our streets and our homes are safe. i in particular want to spend much of my time making sure that our pedestrians, in particular seniors and little children, are safe when they cross the street. this is very personal to me, very, very personal. six years ago i was hit by a car and almost died and now whenever somebody talks about pedestrian safety, my ears perk up. i am norman yee. i'm running for district 7 supervisor. i will come in with a strong independent voice that district 7 voters want. i will be there for you. i am beholden to only the mem
. that's true, it's terrible, anne they will hurt the economy, but those are short-term in nature. and recoverable. i'm urging you to step back and take a look at the bigger picture. tens of thousands of homes experienced damage from sandy. those that are insured for storm damage will get their insurance checks and put thousands of contractors back to work, new begin sum -- gypsum board, new appliances and finally painting up a storm. the recent decline since blowout quarter. that's not the real spurt of the economy. that's also short-term. those homeowners who were directly in the path of sandy, and there were tens of thousands of homes that were, they can't begin to rebuild without government help, because many of them live on roads that have vanished. yes, vanished. so many roads need to be rebuilt. not just homes. but government provided infrastructure. it rises to national emergency. while the level of partisanship in politics has been horrendous lately, i don't care what party you're in, the spirit of cooperation we saw today between democratic president barack obama and new
. but most importantly we have to grow the economy. and so there are a host of host of measures in each of those areas that are absolutely critical for our future and they are not easy decisions to be making but we have to make them sooner rather than later. because if you just pass the buck, it is the next generation who is going to be holding the bag. and in my mind, that is why i am running. it is really to look out for the children who are not voters, who are not being actually considered in my mind as much as they should. >> thank you. >> mr., chig how would you address the state's financial problems? >> we are about a hundred billion dollar budget here in california. we spent about a hundred billion and we bring in $80 billion revenue and that is a $20 billion budget gap, the fastest way for that is to grow jobs, we created clean, green collared jobs and brought jobs from overseas here into san francisco. she is are models that we can take to continue to grow our economy. unfortunately that is not going to be enough. we have to also look at ways to raise revenue, that is why i am
in one of the most competitive sectors, san francisco economy, managing several hundred contracts and generating 1.3 billion in wages. in lead he ship with stagehands i played a vital role as president of the public utilities commission, and a member of the chamber of commerce. during my time as president with the puc, i managed the time on budget, the largest infrastructure project of the generation. and the 4.6 billion hetch hetchy project that ensures the protection of our water sister. during my time in the port commission i led the charge of the development of the james r. herman cruise terminal which serves multiple purposes by creating jobs and protecting the industry that has been part of the backbone for the port and part of the future in terms of fishing transportation and mobile goods and services. i have no ambition for any other than this job as district 7. i was born in the district, graduated from here, i lived in san francisco my entire life. i raised my family here. i know the people and residents, not just my district, but the entire city. i would be an excellent
